PHY, Switch and now a new Timing over Packet processor this makes the IEEE1588 network to be more efficient for Timing and Synchroniation applications.

Good to see some decent priced products coming out. Should make the choice of synchronising distributed systems that bit easier.

The timing over packet (ToP) is also a similar technology to the IEE1588 standard. If I’m right semtech is the world leader in the ToP and the standard is drafted based on this. All the mobile communication infrastructure equipments consist of the transport cards, which contain this functionality. This is one of the technologies of the decade, which helped the mobile infrastructure providers to actually support the complete QoS in 3G and LTE wireless networks.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
